Savinelli: Otello Smooth (409) (6mm)
Product Number: 002-033-37592
Out of Savinelli's straight Dublin renditions, the "409" and "401" share the most in common, both being a touch smaller than the "412 KS." While the dimensions of the "409" and "401" are similar in regards to length, height, and chamber depth, the "409" found here displays more traditional proportions — the stoutness of the shank more balanced and consistent in comparison to the bowl's height, while the shank of the "401" is a touch more slender to emphasize the bowl's height. Such a design makes this "409" the most classically English-styled Dublin in the Italian marque's portfolio, perfect for lovers of timeless shape chart standards who appreciate Savinelli's history of luxury and stunning finishes.
Based on Shakespeare's Othello, the four-act opera Otello was written by Giuseppe Verdi to accompany an Arrigo Boito libretto and was first performed in 1887. It was the Aida composer's penultimate work and follows Shakespeare's tragic story of General Othello. Savinelli pays homage to the famous Italian opera in the Otello line, marked by two distinct finishes, a svelte nickel accent, and a stem-and-shank configuration that emulates a military mount. Found here in the smooth version, this piece wears a pleasant, auburn stain for vivid grain definition.-Truett Smith
